I Weep Over Clara’s Death

‘… a loving heart is better and stronger than wisdom…’
Peggotty’s narration of Clara’s memory of David’s father, before she went to sleep. One of my dearly beloved lines from my most treasured novel  – Charles Dickens, “David Copperfield”.

David Copperfield

David Copperfield

I love wisdom.

I resent my love of wisdom.

And I brood over my resentment of my love of wisdom.

I cannot rest.

‘You are too young to know how the world changes every day, how the people in it pass away. But we all have to learn it, David; some of us when we are young, some of us when we are old, some of us at all times of our lives.’
